Bio

Uri joined the University of Sydney in July 2010 from Copenhagen Business School in Denmark, where he had been Assistant Professor at the Centre for Applied Information and Communication Technology. He received his Ph.D. in Information Systems from Case Western Reserve University, USA.

His research takes a social view of organisational processes in the context of the implementation and use of information systems. He is particularly interested in the relationships between people and technology in organisations, and the changes in the nature of work practices, organisational identities, and interactions associated with the introduction of new information systems.
